    Trailing

    Hi there,
    What does "trailing" mean in the following sentence?
    "Picture exotic golden birds trailing brilliantly colored plumage made of semiprecious stones."
    Would anyone please paraphrase the sentence as well?
    Thanks.

    Re: Trailing

    Not a teacher.

    "To trail" in this case is to pull or to drag.

    The birds trailed the plumage.
